Forza Horizon 5 Peel P50 Side View

If you’re here, there are probably two reasons why this story interests you.

What is certain is that you have a love for supercars

Forza Horizon 5 is one of the most realistic looking racing games you can play right now. It has realistic driving physics and huge collection of cars for you to experience. she it electric cars, hypercars, track cars or even cars that are only meant to be a laugh, the game has it all, and we love it. The result of such a wide variety of options to choose from is that the kind of cars you choose can be excellent or so bad they’re borderline funny.

The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento and the Peel P50 are at opposite ends of the car’s performance spectrum in Forza Horizon 5.

Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is OP

If you like road racing in Forza Horizon 5, chances are you already know that the 2011 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is one of the most overpowered (OP) cars in the game. If you see a driver show up in the Sesto Elemento at the start of the race, it’s pretty much a given that they’ll be at the front of the race – that’s how good the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is.

The 2011 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento can be bought at the Auto Show for 2.5 million CR, or if you’re lucky, you can win it as a Wheelspin or a Super Wheelspin reward. As a stock it has a performance rating of 936 and belongs to the S2 class – which in itself makes it one of the fastest stock cars you can buy in the game. Straight off the showroom floor, it has a full 10/10 rating in the handling, acceleration, launch and braking department, and a 7.8 rating in the speed section. Powered by a 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10, the stock Sesto Elemento delivers 571 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque, has a six-speed manual transmission, four-wheel drive and weighs just 2,202 pounds.

We recommend equipping it with a tune called “AFK Goliath Tune” from “Zombie Virus OG”. This increases power to 750 horsepower, but slightly decreases torque to 382 pound-feet. The speed rating has also been increased to 8.5, but the reason we’re suggesting this tune is because it makes the Sesto one of the best handling cars in the game. So much so that you could give it to your little sibling, and they will still win every race they enter. Okay, maybe not, but you get the point. This tune allows the Sesto to pull a massive lateral force of 1.85G Gs and this makes it one of the best cars you can have in the game.

The Peel P50 is hilariously terrible

The 1962 Peel P50 is one of the cutest and smallest cars you can have in the game (with the right tune), but at the same time it’s completely useless for a real race or event. It’s still a hard-to-find car, though, so we recommend keeping an eye on the auction house to find one easily. As stock, it has a 0.048 liter engine that makes a modest 4 horsepower and comes with a 3-speed transmission.

But use “DuckKing3722″‘s “Drag Peel” tune and the Peel P50 pulls from 0-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, with 292 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. And remember, now it weighs just 520 pounds and all that power is sent to just one wheel!

This takes launch and acceleration to a 10/10, but handling remains at a puny 2.2/10 rating. The Peel P50 is still useless for a real race because it can’t turn around to save its life, but it’s also one of the most fun cars in the game. So much so that even a highly skilled Forza Horizon 5 player will have a hard time winning in this one.

The Forza Horizon 5 is an absolute delight for those interested in cars and gaming. You can drive 6×6 trucks, the coolest american cars and even big trucks if you want – it has every reason why a gear head should be playing this game. And thanks to cars like the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento and the Peel P50, it has something for everyone.
